Travelling to hill stations and visiting new places other than the usual ones are one of our favourites. Travelling has been a way of life after our marriage. Discovering and learning and the exposure by means of travel is something you just cannot get in books...
We have been to Shimla a lot of times, the last time we went to the hills, we thought of staying at Solan and discovering the place. A trip to feel the the quaint blue railway stations, to take a long walk through the rail tunnels, to see the Barog railway station and a ride in the hill train to Shimla was all we wanted. Solan, we found to be a busy hill station with lots of fruit markets. There was a good connectivity of buses to all places from Solan. We made sure we went to see the orchards near the Horticultural University enroute Rajagiri and Barog and Shimla.
See Solan through my camera eyes....

Lovely light and patterns
